Adrian Lyne, the director of Fatal Attraction and the original Jacob’s Ladder, is set to direct his first film since 2002’s Unfaithful with Deep Water, an erotic thriller that currently has Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck in talks to lead the cast. The film is based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel, adapted by Zack Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) and Sam Levinson (Euphoria).

Deadline reports, “Affleck and de Armas are in talks to play Vic and Melinda Van Allen, an attractive young married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. The couple staves off divorce in a loveless marriage by allowing each to take lovers, but it becomes messy as Highsmith exposed the surface facade of American suburban life.”

The film will begin production in November, if all goes as planned.

Producers include Garrett Basch, Steven Zaillian, Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner, Anthony Katagas and Arnon Milchan.
